, steady there, monty, i'm your boss. it's fascinating to me how that difficult relationship with the british as they're realizing that we are replacing them not only in the combat effectiveness, but as a superpower, um, how eisenhower kind of lets them down'sly, manages that -- easily, manages that. doesn't fire montgomery though he's sorely tempted to do so at times. if you think i'm exaggerating eisenhower's achievement, think they had to follow seniority and put george patton in that job. [laughter] >> things might not have gone so well. >> no. i think we probably would have ended up at war with the british.
